Here are some ways you may lose weight fast with lifestyle changes –

 

Work on your diet

The first step when it comes to losing weight is to work on your diet. Watching what you eat and eating a balanced healthy diet is the fastest way to lose weight fast. Cutting back on sugars and starchy foods (carbohydrates) will help you massively. Reducing the sugary and starchy foods you eat will reduce your hunger levels which will in turn reduce your weight eventually. Also instead of burning carbohydrates for energy, your body starts to feed off stored fat.

Make sure your diet includes more protein and vegetables. Some great examples are –

Tomatoes

Cucumber

Fish

Meat

Seafood

Spinach

Broccoli

 

Working on your diet is one very important lifestyle change you should make if you want to lose weight.

 

Stay active

You need to stay active so you lose weight and to keep it off. You don’t have to go to a gym to stay active. Going for walks help. Jogging/running is a great way to spend tome outdoors and exercise at the same time. You could also join a dance club to get moving or have your own dance session at home if you prefer that. There are lots of YouTube videos available to help you on that.

Staying active is so very important. Getting out and about everyday, even if it is just for a few minutes helps your mental and physical health.

Eat your food slowly

Believe it or not, eating your food slowly helps you lose weight. This is one tip I was pleased to discover because I eat slowly naturally. That could be one reason why I manage to keep the weight off. Eating your food slowly helps you feel full quicker which will discourage overeating.

 

Drink more water

Research has shown that drinking a glass of water 30 minutes before having a meal will increase weight loss in about 3 months. So if you are struggling with excess weight and have tried every trick in the book, you should try this one.

 

Get a good night’s sleep

Research has proved that sleeping well can help you lose weight. Poor sleep is now strongly linked to obesity so ensure you are getting the right amount of sleep. This is yet another reason to make sure you are sleeping enough. Most adults need around 7/8 hours of good sleep. Poor sleep can lead to many other health problems so getting a good night’s sleep is very important.

 

Do you have any tried and tested tips to share for anyone dealing with weight gain?

  1. Never used to have a problem with my weight even after having the adult youngsters. About 10 years ago when health issues kicked in, but time, getting older etc I have put on weight. Yo Yo’d with dieting.

    Last year after David passed I had lost quite a bit of weight with the stress of it all. I started fixating again on my weight to keep it off. It was a form of avoidance of some feelings I realised pretty quickly. I realised I was getting on and off the scales too much.

    I then decided to throw out the scales, eat healthily, and forgive myself if I had a bad few days. Keep it in the day over eating healthily and allow myself treats.

    I am between a size 14-16 which is Brit average. This has worked. I am far happier with myself now I have stopped fretting about diets and food

    • I never weigh myself. I didn’t going on the scale regularly can keep you fixated on your weight and that does no good. Good you are happy with yourself now. Treats are always good.

  2. Great tips ! your diet description shares a lot in common with the Mediterranean diet ! To add a lot of people doesn’t know how eating slowly is important ! thank you for sharing !
